5. THE WALLET
5.1.1 The Wallet is provided to you exclusively by Blockchain Luxembourg S.A. At no point will Blockchain ever take custody of Virtual Currency stored in a Wallet. The Wallet is only capable of supporting certain Virtual Currencies. Under no circumstances should you attempt to store Virtual Currencies in your Wallet that the Wallet does not support.
5.1.2 When you create a Wallet, the Wallet software generates a cryptographic private and public key pair that you may use to send and receive any supported Virtual Currency via the relevant Virtual Currency network. YOU MUST STORE, OUTSIDE OF THE SERVICES, A BACKUP OF ALL WALLET CREDENTIALS, INCLUDING YOUR PASSPHRASES, IDENTIFIERS, BACKUP PHRASES, PRIVATE KEYS AND NETWORK ADDRESSES. If you do not maintain a backup of your Wallet data outside of the Services, you will not be able to access Virtual Currency previously accessed using your Wallet in the event that we discontinue or no longer offer some or all of the Services or may otherwise lose access to Virtual Currency. We are not responsible for maintaining this data on your behalf.
5.2 Risk Disclosures Relating to the Wallet.
5.2.1 In order to be completed, any Virtual Currency transaction created with the Wallet must be confirmed and recorded in the Virtual Currency ledger associated with the relevant Virtual Currency network. Such networks are decentralized, peer-to-peer networks supported by independent third parties, which are not owned, controlled or operated by Blockchain.
5.2.2 Blockchain has no control over any Virtual Currency network and therefore cannot and does not ensure that any transaction details you submit via our Services will be confirmed on the relevant Virtual Currency network. The transaction details you submit via our Services may not be completed, or may be substantially delayed, by the Virtual Currency network used to process the transaction. We do not guarantee that the Wallet can transfer title or right in any Virtual Currency or make any warranties whatsoever with regard to title.
5.2.3 Once transaction details have been submitted to a Virtual Currency network, we cannot assist you to cancel or otherwise modify your transaction or transaction details. Blockchain has no control over any Virtual Currency network and does not have the ability to facilitate any cancellation or modification requests.
5.3 Forks. In the event of a Fork or other network disruption, Blockchain may not be able to support activity related to your Virtual Currency. In the event of a Fork, the transactions may not be completed, completed partially, incorrectly completed, or substantially delayed. Blockchain is not responsible for any loss incurred by you caused in whole or in part, directly or indirectly, by a Fork or other network disruption.
5.4 No Password Retrieval.
5.4.1 With respect to the Wallet, Blockchain does not receive or store your Wallet password, nor any keys, network addresses or transaction history. We cannot assist you with Wallet password retrieval. You are solely responsible for remembering, storing and keeping secret your Wallet password. Any Virtual Currency you have associated with such Wallet may become inaccessible if you do not know or keep secret your Wallet password. Any third party with knowledge of one or more of your credentials (including, without limitation, a backup phrase, wallet identifier or password) can dispose of Virtual Currency in your Wallet
5.4.2 When you create a Wallet, you must: (a) create a strong password that you do not use for any other website or online service; (b) provide accurate and truthful information; (c) protect and keep secret all credentials for the Wallet; (d) protect access to your device and your Wallet; (e) promptly notify us if you discover or otherwise suspect any security breaches related to your Wallet; and (f) use the backup functionality provided through the Wallet and safeguard your backup files. You agree to take responsibility for all activities that occur with your Wallet and accept all risks of any authorized or unauthorized access to your Wallet, to the maximum extent permitted by law.
5.5 Fees. Blockchain does not currently charge a fee for the Wallet receiving, sending or controlling Virtual Currency. However, we reserve the right to do so in the future, and in such case shall display to you any applicable fees prior to you incurring the fee. Network fees (including, without limitation “miner’s fees”) required to use a Virtual Currency network may apply to a transaction. We may attempt to calculate such a fee for you. Our calculation may not be sufficient, or it may be excessive. You may select a greater or lesser fee. You are solely responsible for selecting and paying any such fee and Blockchain shall neither advance nor fund such a fee on your behalf, nor be responsible for any excess or insufficient fee calculation.
6.1 Description. We may provide Swap to you using the Wallet interface. Swap is provided to you exclusively by Blockchain Access UK LTD or a Third Party Conversion Service. Through Swap, Blockchain shall display to you a conversion rate that may include a fee, which you agree to pay. Swap works in connection with the Wallet, by which we shall deliver to you the requested Virtual Currency, less any applicable fees, by executing a transaction from a Virtual Currency address we control to one associated with your Wallet.
6.2 Due Diligence. We may, at our sole discretion and from time-to-time, require you to satisfy our Compliance Program before participating in Swap or receiving funds. In order to use Swap, you agree to cooperate with any such request and pay any associated fees, which may be modified or supplemented at any time.
6.3 No Cancellation. You may not cancel, reverse or change any Swap transaction. We may suspend, delay, redirect, reverse or cancel any Swap transaction at any time and for any reason. For example, and without limitation, we may do so if we suspect any risk of fraud, crime, breach of this User Agreement, or illicit activity.
6.4 Transaction Limitation. We may implement Swap transaction limits. These may vary based on a variety of factors, including, without limitation, the time of your transaction, your location, the Virtual Currency purchased, and the Virtual Currency sold. We implement, raise and lower Swap transaction limits in our sole discretion.
6.5 Third Party Conversion Service. On occasion, a third party service provider, selected by Blockchain in our sole discretion, may operate Swap. YOUR USE OF A THIRD PARTY CONVERSION SERVICE FOR SWAP SHALL BE ON AN ‘AS-IS’ BASIS. Blockchain is not your counterparty in any transaction completed via any Third Party Conversion Service and cannot be held liable for any loss caused in whole or in part, directly or indirectly, by your use of the Third Party Conversion Service.
7.1 Description. We may advertise to you a Blockchain Lockbox hardware device to be used in connection with the Wallet or other Services. A Lockbox is manufactured, offered, sold and supported (if applicable) by third parties, not Blockchain. You have no relationship, contractual or otherwise, with Blockchain in connection with your purchase of a Lockbox from such third party. We do not act as a reseller. We may, from time-to-time, include features permitting you to use a Lockbox in connection with the Wallet. We do not guarantee support for, or access to, any Lockbox as part of the Services. We shall not be responsible for any damages caused in whole or in part, directly or indirectly, by a Lockbox or any use of a Lockbox, whether or not it was used in connection with the Services.
7.2 No Password Retrieval.
7.2.1 Blockchain does not receive or store passwords, keys, network addresses, transaction history, personal identification numbers (“PINs”) or other credentials associated with a Lockbox. We cannot assist you with Lockbox credential retrieval. You are solely responsible for remembering, storing and keeping secret any Lockbox credentials. Any Virtual Currency you have associated with a Lockbox may become inaccessible if you do not know or keep secret your credentials. Any third party with knowledge of one or more of your credentials (including, without limitation, a backup phrase or PIN) can dispose of Virtual Currency in your Lockbox.
7.2.2 When you set up a Lockbox, you must: (a) create strong credentials (like PINs) that you do not use for any other service; (b) protect and keep secret all credentials; (c) protect access to your Lockbox; (d) promptly notify us if you discover or otherwise suspect any security breaches related to your Lockbox; and (e) use the backup functionality provided with the Lockbox, keeping all backup information secure and confidential. You agree to take responsibility for all activities that occur in connection with your Lockbox and accept all risks of any authorized or unauthorized access to your Lockbox, to the maximum extent permitted by law.
7.3 Risk Disclosures Relating to the Lockbox.
7.3.1 At no point will Blockchain ever take custody or control over any Virtual Currency stored using a Lockbox, nor will we have access to any credentials associated with your Lockbox or the ability to recover any Virtual Currency used in connection with a Lockbox.
7.3.2 Information relating to Virtual Currency, like balances, availability or value, may not reflect the actual balance in real-time. You must independently verify all information before relying on it, and any decisions or actions taken based upon such information are your sole responsibility.
7.4 Disclaimer of Warranties.
7.4.1 Any Services offered in connection with the Lockbox are provided on an “AS IS” basis without any representation or warranty, whether express, implied or statutory. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, we specifically disclaim any implied warranties of title, merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose and/or non-infringement.
7.4.2 We make no warranty that any Lockbox will be free from viruses, malware, or other related harmful material and make no representation that your ability to access any Lockbox will be uninterrupted. Any defects or malfunction in the product should be directed to the third party offering the Lockbox and not Blockchain. We shall not be responsible or liable to you for any loss of any kind, from action taken, or taken in reliance on material, or information, contained on or through the Lockbox.
8. AIRDROP PROGRAM
8.1 Description. We may offer you the opportunity to receive Virtual Currency at no cost (“Airdrop”), subject to the terms described in this section. The Airdrop Program is provided to you exclusively by Blockchain Access UK LTD. The Virtual Currency is delivered by us to you, but is manufactured, offered and supported by the network creator or developer, if any, and not by Blockchain.
8.2 Terms of Airdrop Program.
8.2.1 No Purchase Necessary. There is no purchase necessary to receive Virtual Currency in an Airdrop. However, you must have a Wallet and a User Account. Although Blockchain does not charge a fee for participation in the Airdrop Program, we reserve the right to do so in the future and shall provide prior notice to you in such case.
8.2.2 Timing. Each Airdrop shall be subject to any terms displayed in the Services and marked with an asterisk (*) or other similar notation.
8.2.3 Limited Supply. An offer to receive Virtual Currency in an Airdrop is only available to you while supplies last. Once the amount of Virtual Currency offered by Blockchain in an Airdrop is exhausted, any party who has either been placed on a waitlist, or has completed certain additional steps, but not yet received notice of award of Virtual Currency in such Airdrop, shall no longer be eligible to receive Virtual Currency in that Airdrop. Blockchain reserves the right, in our sole discretion, to modify or suspend any Airdrop requirements at any time without notice, including the amount previously advertised as available.
8.2.4 Eligibility. You may not be eligible to receive Virtual Currency from an Airdrop in your jurisdiction. In the event that you have multiple Wallets with Blockchain, you are only eligible to receive Virtual Currency from an Airdrop in one Wallet and for one User Account.
8.2.5 Notice of Award. In the event you are selected to receive Virtual Currency in an Airdrop, we shall provide you with written notice of the pending delivery of such Virtual Currency. Eligibility may be limited as to time. We are not liable to you for failure to receive any notice associated with the Airdrop Program due to change in your contact information that was not updated by you prior to such time as the notice was delivered by us to you.
8.3 Risk Disclosures Relating to Airdrop Program.
8.3.1 You are solely responsible for researching and understanding the Virtual Currency network subject to the Airdrop. You may not rely on any of our statements concerning the foregoing.
9. THE PIT
9.1 Description. We may offer you the ability to purchase and sell Virtual Currency for other Virtual Currency or fiat currency via the PIT subject to the terms of this Agreement. The PIT is provided to you exclusively by Blockchain Access UK LTD. Use of the PIT requires a User Account, which may require you to complete certain actions pursuant to our Compliance Program. Your use of the PIT is subject to the terms of the Trading Principles as amended from time to time. In the event of any inconsistency between this Agreement and the Trading Principles, this Agreement shall apply with respect to matters relating to this Section.
9.2 Availability of Service. The PIT may not be available in all markets and jurisdictions. We may restrict or prohibit use of the PIT in certain jurisdictions (“Restricted Locations”), and change such restrictions or prohibitions at any time.
9.3 General Obligations.

9.3.2 Hardware and Software Requirement. We may limit use of the PIT to certain hardware devices and/or supported software. We do not guarantee that the PIT will be accessible through all manufacturers of electronic devices or software developers.

9.3.3 User Account Access. In the normal course of business, we will require login credentials to access your User Account. We may impose additional security measures to be used when you access the PIT, including but not limited to two-factor authentication (“2FA”). This 2FA may include security passcodes sent via mobile text message or electronic mail or an application designed to provide 2FA by other means. If prompted to install any such 2FA application, you are solely responsible for ensuring the security of any password or login credentials. We may provide data through such 2FA application in order to authenticate your use of the PIT. We cannot be held responsible for any damage caused by a 2FA device, software or method.
9.3.4 PIT Communications. Blockchain may offer a “chat” or “messaging” feature in connection with the PIT , use of which will allow you to communicate with other PIT Participants (as such term is defined in the Trading Principles). Use of any such feature is subject to both the terms of this Agreement and the Trading Principles. Blockchain may suspend or terminate your use of any such messaging feature, in our sole discretion, for any reason, with or without notice. All communications made on any such feature are subject to surveillance and retention by Blockchain and may be produced by us in response to a request for information from law enforcement, a governmental agency or regulatory authority. Any such feature is not a method of execution, and any communications relating to transactions are for discussion purposes only. All orders must be executed via the PIT’s order process.
9.3.5 User Account Information. You will be able to view certain details of your account history as determined by Blockchain, up to a specific period of time as determined by Blockchain in our sole discretion. This account history may include information such as: (a) your fiat balance; (b) your Virtual Currency balance; (c) executed transaction details; (d) unexecuted transaction details; and (e) deposit and withdrawal information.
9.4 Deposits and Withdrawals to Your User Account.
9.4.1 Funding Your User Account. In order to complete a Virtual Currency transaction, you will need sufficient funds in your User Account, either in the form of Virtual Currency or fiat currency, depending upon the order type you select. Blockchain may not support all funding methods at all times. You are solely responsible for your use of any external account, provider, or service used to transfer funds to your User Account. The timing associated with any deposit will vary and may depend in part upon the performance of third parties unrelated to Blockchain. We shall not be responsible for damages resulting from failed or delayed funding.
188.8.131.52 Treatment of Fiat Funds. We shall hold fiat currency deposited by you in a bank account. Each such account is separate from our operating bank account(s). Your use of the PIT does not create or represent any relationship between you and any of our banks and such account may not be in your name or for your benefit.

9.4.2 Withdrawing Funds from Your User Account. In the event that the balance of available funds in your User Account is greater than any minimum balance requirement needed to satisfy all open orders, you may request a withdrawal of Virtual Currency or fiat currency, as applicable. You are solely responsible for losses resulting in whole or in part from any external account, provider, or service. We cannot guarantee the timing of any withdrawal request. Requests may be delayed or canceled as part of our Compliance Program.
9.4.3 Payment Service Providers. We may, at our discretion, use a third party payment service provider to process deposit and withdrawal requests in fiat currencies. Upon making a deposit or withdrawal request for fiat currency, you may be directed away from the PIT or Blockchain Site to a third party website. In such case, you are solely responsible for any actions taken on such website and we shall not be liable for any loss resulting in whole or in part from such website or provider
9.4.4 Deposit and Withdrawal Limits. We may, in our sole discretion, impose daily, weekly, monthly, or other periodic limits on deposits and withdrawals, which we may implement, eliminate, increase or decrease without advance notice.

9.5.2 Cancellation Policy. The PIT is an active and live marketplace. By entering any order, you are bound to its terms and may not be able to cancel such order. You must review all of the details prior to entering an order on the PIT, including the quantity and price of the Virtual Currency to be bought or sold, as well as the amount of funds, either Virtual Currency or fiat currency, that will be required in connection with your trade request. Please see the Trading Principles for additional information on Blockchain’s cancellation practices.
9.6 Fees. You must pay any fees associated with your use of the PIT. Generally, Blockchain will debit fees for orders from the total cost of your order. Blockchain may charge other fees, or process fees in an alternative manner, but only with prior written notice to you. On the Blockchain Site, we shall post a fee schedule that we may amend at any time in our sole discretion, with prior written notice to you. In the event you are found to owe us any amount of fiat currency or Virtual Currency, we may offset such amount against any funds we hold for you, whether in Virtual Currency or fiat currency.
10. GENERAL RISK FACTORS
Your use of the Services requires you to bear risks for which we cannot be held responsible. We list some, but not all of these risks below:
Hardware, software or connections required to interact with a Virtual Currency network might fail, succumb to malware, unauthorized access or malicious attacks. Third parties may obtain unauthorized access to the Services, including, but not limited to your public and private keys. Blockchain shall not be responsible for any communication failures, disruptions, errors, distortions or delays you may experience when using the Services, however caused.
Forks, unknown vulnerabilities in or unanticipated changes to the network protocol may cause losses to you or others. Blockchain has no control over any cryptocurrency network and shall not be responsible for any harm occurring as a result of the inability to reverse a transaction, and any losses in connection therewith due to erroneous or fraudulent actions.
The risk of loss of value in using Services involving Virtual Currencies may be substantial and losses may occur over a short period of time. In addition, price and liquidity are subject to significant fluctuations that may be unpredictable.
Virtual Currencies are not legal tender and are not backed by any sovereign government. In addition, the legislative and regulatory landscape around Virtual Currencies is constantly changing and may affect your ability to use, transfer, or exchange Virtual Currencies.
Under certain market conditions you may find it difficult to liquidate a position. In such circumstances, the PIT may not have sufficient demand to meet your request to execute such a transaction. Placing contingent orders, such as a “stop” or “limit” order does not guarantee your potential loss will be limited to an intended amount, as market conditions may make it difficult to execute such orders. You may suffer losses due to orders executing at lower or higher values than anticipated or requested.
Virtual Currency transactions may not be reversible. Once you send Virtual Currency to an address, you may lose access to your Virtual Currency temporarily or indefinitely. For example, an address may have been entered incorrectly, or an address may belong to an entity that will not return your Virtual Currency. Virtual Currency mistakenly sent to an address we control may not be recoverable.

13.3 Disclaimer of Warranties. BLOCKCHAIN DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL PROMISES, REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, DATA ACCURACY, SYSTEM INTEGRATION, TITLE, NON-INFRINGEMENT AND/OR QUIET ENJOYMENT, AND ANY SERVICES PROVIDED BY BLOCKCHAIN ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE.” EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY PROVIDED HEREIN, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT BLOCKCHAIN MAKES NO WARRANTIES UNDER THIS AGREEMENT DIRECTLY FOR THE BENEFIT OF ANY END USER, AND THAT BLOCKCHAIN’S OBLIGATIONS UNDER THIS AGREEMENT ARE FOR THE BENEFIT OF YOU ONLY, AND NOT FOR THE BENEFIT OF ANY OTHER PERSON. IN ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU REPRESENT THAT YOU HAVE NOT RELIED UPON ANY REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY OF BLOCKCHAIN OR ITS AFFILIATES EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY SET FORTH IN THIS AGREEMENT.

13.4 Limitation of Liability. IN NO EVENT SHALL BLOCKCHAIN, ITS AFFILIATES AND SERVICE PROVIDERS, OR ANY OF THEIR RESPECTIVE OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, AGENTS, EMPLOYEES OR REPRESENTATIVES, BE LIABLE FOR: (A) ANY AMOUNT GREATER THAN THE VALUE OF THE VIRTUAL CURRENCY ACTUALLY DELIVERED TO US BY YOU OR BY YOU TO US IN CONNECTION WITH A SUPPORTED VIRTUAL CURRENCY TRANSACTION COMPLETED ON ITS DISPLAYED TERMS OVER THE LAST SIX MONTHS, VALUED IN GREAT BRITISH POUNDS AT THE TIME OF THE TRANSACTION; OR (B) FOR ANY LOST PROFITS OR ANY SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, INTANGIBLE, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, WHETHER BASED IN CONTRACT, TORT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY, OR OTHERWISE, ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH AUTHORIZED OR UNAUTHORIZED USE OF THE SERVICES, OR THIS AGREEMENT, EVEN IF AN AUTHORIZED REPRESENTATIVE OF BLOCKCHAIN HAS BEEN ADVISED OF, KNEW OF, OR SHOULD HAVE KNOWN OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. FOR EXAMPLE (AND WITHOUT LIMITING THE SCOPE OF THE PRECEDING SENTENCE), YOU MAY NOT RECOVER FOR LOST PROFITS, LOST BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES, OR OTHER TYPES OF SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, INTANGIBLE, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHALL WE BE REQUIRED TO DELIVER TO YOU ANY VIRTUAL CURRENCY AS DAMAGES, MAKE SPECIFIC PERFORMANCE OR ANY OTHER REMEDY. IF YOU WOULD BASE YOUR CALCULATIONS OF DAMAGES IN ANY WAY ON THE VALUE OF VIRTUAL CURRENCY, YOU AND WE AGREE THAT THE CALCULATION SHALL BE BASED ON THE LOWEST VALUE OF THE VIRTUAL CURRENCY DURING THE PERIOD BETWEEN THE ACCRUAL OF THE CLAIM AND THE AWARD OF DAMAGES.
WE SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES CAUSED IN WHOLE OR IN PART BY (A) THE MALFUNCTION, UNEXPECTED FUNCTION OR UNINTENDED FUNCTION OF ANY COMPUTER OR CRYPTOCURRENCY NETWORK, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION LOSSES ASSOCIATED WITH NETWORK FORKS, REPLAY ATTACKS, DOUBLE-SPEND ATTACKS, SYBIL ATTACKS, 51% ATTACKS, GOVERNANCE DISPUTES, MINING DIFFICULTY, CHANGES IN CRYPTOGRAPHY OR CONSENSUS RULES, HACKING OR CYBERSECURITY BREACHES; (B) THE CHANGE IN VALUE OF ANY CRYPTOCURRENCY; (C) ANY CHANGE IN LAW, REGULATION OR POLICY, OR (D) FORCE MAJEURE. THIS LIMITATION OF LIABILITY IS INTENDED TO APPLY WITHOUT REGARD TO WHETHER OTHER PROVISIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT HAVE BEEN BREACHED OR HAVE PROVEN INEFFECTIVE.
13.5 Indemnification You agree to indemnify and hold harmless Blockchain, its affiliates, subsidiaries, directors, managers, members, officers, and employees from any and all claims, demands, actions, damages, losses, costs or expenses, including without limitation, reasonable legal fees, arising out of or relating to your or any other person’s use of your credentials or User Account in connection with: (a) use of the Blockchain Site or Services; (b) breach of this User Agreement or any other policy; (c) feedback or submissions you provide; (d) false, incomplete, or misleading information relied upon by us to verify your identity and source of funds, where applicable; or (e) violation of any rights of any other person or entity; provided however, that you shall not indemnify Blockchain for claims or losses arising out of Blockchain’s gross negligence or willful misconduct. This indemnity shall apply to your successors and assigns and shall survive any termination or cancellation of this User Agreement.
13.6 Any and all of our indemnities, warranties, and limitations of liability (whether express or implied) are hereby excluded to the fullest extent permitted under law except as set forth herein. Nothing in this User Agreement excludes or limits liability which may not be limited or excluded under applicable law.
14.1 Force Majeure. If by reason in whole or in part of any Force Majeure Event, either you or Blockchain is delayed or prevented from complying with this User Agreement, then such delay or non-compliance shall not be deemed to be a breach of this User Agreement and no loss or damage shall be claimed by you or Blockchain by reason thereof. “Force Majeure Event” means any event beyond the party’s reasonable control, including, but not limited to, flood, extraordinary weather conditions, earthquake, or other act of God, fire, war, insurrection, riot, labor dispute, accident, action of government, communications, power failure, failure in bank performance, or equipment or software malfunction including network splits or “forks” or unexpected changes in a computer network upon which the Services rely.
14.2 Taxes. It is your responsibility to determine what, if any, taxes apply due to your use of Blockchain Services, and it is your responsibility to report and remit the correct tax to the appropriate tax authority. Blockchain is not responsible for determining whether taxes apply to your Virtual Currency transactions or for collecting, reporting, withholding or remitting any taxes arising from any virtual currency transactions.
14.3 Severability, Reformation. In the event that any provision of this User Agreement is unenforceable under applicable law, the validity or enforceability of the remaining provisions will not be affected. To the extent any provision of this User Agreement is judicially determined to be unenforceable, a court of competent jurisdiction may reform any such provision to make it enforceable. The provisions of this User Agreement will, where possible, be interpreted so as to sustain its legality and enforceability.
14.4 Assignment. This User Agreement shall be binding on your successors, heirs, personal representatives, and assigns. You may not assign or transfer any of your rights or obligations under this User Agreement without prior written consent of Blockchain, which may be withheld in Blockchain’s sole discretion. We may assign rights or delegate duties under this User Agreement in our sole discretion.

14.6 Entire Agreement. This User Agreement constitutes the entire agreement among the Parties with respect to the subject matter described herein and shall supersede all prior agreements and understandings, written or oral, among the Parties. Subsequent discussions or negotiations between you and Blockchain or Blockchain personnel shall only amend or become part of this User Agreement by way of a written amendment specifically referencing the last updated date and name of this User Agreement.

15. DISPUTE RESOLUTION FOR UNITED STATES USERS
15.1 Disputes. If you live in the United States (or, if you are a business, have your principal place of business in the United States), any dispute arising between you and us under this User Agreement or our relationship (whether arising out of contract, tort, statute or any other manner) shall be settled in binding arbitration, in accordance with the Federal Arbitration Act under the American Arbitration Association’s rules; provided, however, nothing in this Agreement will waive, preclude or otherwise limit your right to (i) bring an individual action in a U.S. small claims court or (ii) file a representative action solely to obtain a public injunction.
15.2 Arbitration. The arbitration will be conducted by a single, neutral arbitrator and shall take place in the county or parish of your billing address, or another mutually agreeable location, in the English language. The arbitrator shall apply the law of the state of New York, without regard to its conflict of laws principles. The arbitrator may award any relief that a court of competent jurisdiction could award, including attorneys’ fees when authorized by law, and the arbitration decision may be enforced in any court. You agree that the arbitrator shall have the authority to order relief, and you agree to abide by all decisions and awards rendered in such a proceeding, which shall be final and conclusive. At your request, hearings may be conducted in person or by telephone and the arbitrator may provide for submitting and determining motions on briefs, without oral hearings. The prevailing party in any action or proceeding to enforce this agreement shall be entitled to reasonable costs and attorneys’ fees.
15.3 If the arbitrator(s) or administrator imposes filing fees or other administrative costs on you, we will reimburse you, upon request, to the extent such fees or costs would exceed those that you would otherwise have to pay if you were proceeding instead in a court. If a court decides that any provision of this section concerning Arbitration is invalid or unenforceable, that provision shall be severed and resolved in accordance with English law exclusively and the other parts of this section concerning Arbitration shall still apply. In no case shall the remainder of this User Agreement be affected. If the invalidity or unenforceability of a provision causes a dispute to proceed in a court instead of arbitration, the Parties agree that such court must be located in London, England, applying English law.
15.4 No Trial by Jury. By entering into this User Agreement, you expressly waive your right to a trial by jury and right to participate in a class action lawsuit.
16. DISPUTE RESOLUTION FOR NON-U.S. USERS
16.1 If you live outside of the United States (or, if you are a business, have your principal place of business outside of the United States), any dispute arising between you and us under this User Agreement or our relationship (whether arising out of contract, tort, statute or any other manner), the courts located in London, England shall have exclusive jurisdiction of such dispute, and will hear the dispute under English law.
